In this challenge, your goal is to write a short story of any length incorporating all five of the senses. The catch is that the story cannot use the names of the senses. You cannot put "I smelled/tasted/heard/etc.". You have to use descriptive detail to get across what the character is sensing.

On the horizon, the sun set, a dark afternoon blue turning vibrant with oranges and yellows and pinks and reds, painting the sky like an aurora beheld in the North. Roses, some red and some white, dotted the beautiful plains and around her feet, and their enchanting scent was enough to send someone into the most pleasant dream, one where chocolate was on her tongue and laughter was in her eyes."copyright protection204PENANArOKbsF2yw9

shnuffeluv - Could the plot be as simple as two friends hanging out?
